Where do I begin with Javescript?

I started my next course JavaScript Foundations in the learning adventure become a web designer and in the first video of the course he refers to what we had learned about variables in the Introduction to Programming course which doesn't come until after JavaScript Foundations on the road map. Is this a bug and I should start with Introduction to Programming instead, or have you changed the order of importance upon which one to do first? It would be great to get a response soon because I'm kinda at a stand-still.

Jump over to programming and do introduction to programming, then javascript and come back to interactive website.

it's a good shout to do PHP before all that too as it give a really good foundation on what programming does etc.

I Agree with Matthew - intro to programming first then javascript. Even though PHP is a different language, it seems that all of the Object Orientated Programming (OOP) languages share the same principles, so learning that first is definately a good option too.

I've just finished the JavaScript lot last week (and read a book on it at work evey break time) and then went into the PHP material towards the end of the week. There have been moments where I'm like "ahhhhh I get it now" after seeing similar things between the two languages.

@spen Thanks! It's great to know everything has basic similarities in OOP.
